Demand for sensors that can operate in extreme conditions is increasing, in response to an overall industry trend toward additional product performance testing and monitoring. It takes an extremely durable design to make reliable measurements in extreme conditions, which may include high or cryogenic temperatures, aggressive chemicals, high pressures, or high radiation. The article reviews the distinct advantages and disadvantages of sensor technologies used to measure position or displacement in these difficult environments.
